Manchester United manager David Moyes revealed on Sunday that star man Shinji Kagawa has still not recovered fully from the stomach pumping procedure that was performed on him two weeks ago.

The former Dortmund man had missed United’s 3-0 win against Aston Villa despite having played against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League and in response to his absence from the team Moyes told the press: "He hasn’t recovered physically from the sickness he had after the match against Everton."

Shinji Kagawa reportedly had to get his stomach pumped for having eaten too much after his side’s 1-0 loss to Everton at Old Trafford and Moyes will want the attacking midfielder back soon as they have already been hit hard due to the injury to front man Robin van Persie.

The Japanese playmaker has been linked back to old club Dortmund and will be looking to prove his worth after his £15million move to United last season. Often played on the left wing, Kagawa will face competition from United’s young revelation Adnan Januzaj and it will be interesting to see who Moyes prefers in his team for the long term. 

According to Squawka, he has just made 11 appearances this season and hasn’t found the back of the net. He has only created nine goal scoring chances for his club, something he would be looking to improve if he remains after the January transfer window.

The Premier League’s defending champions are currently in a lowly 8th place in the league standings with just 25 points from a possible 48.
